The Rock signed for Michael Bay movie
Dwayne Johnson has officially signed to star in Michael Bay’s upcoming new
movie titled Pain and Gain along with Mark Wahlberg. The movie – based on a
true story – follows a group of bodybuilders who engaged in a campaign of
kidnapping, extortion and murder in Florida. It will be directed by Michael
Bay with Donald De Line and Ian Bryce along with Bay himself as producers.
Production will start in Spring. The announcement was made by Paramount
Pictures today with a press release which also announced Bay’s involvement
in the fourth Transformers movie. Rumors are that Bay only agreed to do the
Transformers sequel if Paramount agreed to pick up Pain and Gain.
